Description

When Sir Charles Browning, a young aristocrat, apparently abandons his wife, leaving her destitute and ostracised, Sarah Kedron, a successful playwright and feminist, agrees to help the young wife by finding out what has happened.

James Brewster, the editor of her father's weekly periodical, assists Sarah in her investigation. Their search for the truth takes them from the high society of Regency England to its shady underbelly.

Firmly established in the social, political and economic conditions of the time, The Missing Baronet is an enthralling read.

Review quote

"A meticulously researched period piece, bringing together colourful characters, conflicting aspirations and a tricky mystery to solve." B.J Haydon

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book which is a thriller set in England in the Regency period. The reader is presented with a wonderful insight into life at that time. Expressions such as "a bumper," "a pot boy" and the description of the various modes of transport set the scene. The author has clearly researched the historical setting very thoroughly. This is an absorbing thriller with a complicated plot and well-drawn, interesting characters. There are just a few tantalising leads to reveal the surprise ending. Overall, this is an extremely good read." R Ross.
